“I am proud and inspired to be on such a diverse team. Studies show that the more diverse a team is, the more creative their solutions, the greater their ability to foresee customer needs, and the more innovative their new ideas are. The benefits surely don’t stop there either, but one thing is certain, our diverse team yields better results than any individual ever could. One proverb that instantly comes to mind is this: “If you want to go fast, go alone; but if you want to go far, go together.”
